First Book of the Year 2018 with Sheila @bookjourney

bannerAlmost missed the First Book of the Year 2018, a book blogging meme hosted by Sheila of Book Journey! Since I’ve participated in this for the past several years and almost forgot, I obviously need to renew for this year my 2017 New Year’s resolution to get back to book blogging!My first book of the year is Those Who Leave and Those Who Stay by Elena Ferrante. It’s the third book in the Neapolitan quartet, which I plan to finish this year.

Neapolitan Quartet novelsTwo other books I have resolved to read in 2018 are NW by Zadie Smith…

I’m going to go out on a limb here and list my other New Year’s resolutions related to books and blogging:

  1. No social media before 11 a.m.
  2. Write something every day.
  3. Read for at least 30 minutes every morning

  1. Great goals for the new year, I have similar ones but I check my email, Instagram and such during my morning coffee before work. I would like to stay off the social media a bit more though.

    Great book selections! Did you join the Goodreads challenge too?

  2. The Elena Ferrante books were great! I devoted a good chunk of my summer vacation to them, so I guess that’s how I managed to beat you to the finish line even though you started before me. 😀

Would love to have you comment!
